Ceramic capacitor question

Another question from me :)

The Compukit UK101 has several ceramic capacitors, all marked 104Z 25V,
which judging by what I've found on the web so far makes them .1uF. My local
Maplins (sorry, that seems to be a swear word in some parts) only has 224Z
at 25V (I'd guess .2uF?) and 104Z at 50V, half the size.

What can I get away with? Or am I right in assuming I need to match exactly?

Ta for any help....
